  4. well an up date . no news from fraud dept. . I have been turned down for e s a contribution based (not enough stamp ). ive received a atos form to fill out before a medical. so I still have no money transport etc. and I'm stuck in the house as I can't get to the nearest bus stop even if I wanted to . happy new year to you all .
  5. yep they have the full story with all the paper work that went with it . esa was contribution based if I remember right .
  6. I have been in touch with cab and solicitors , the cab advised me to appeal the dla , and then I have to just wait and see what the dwp want to do before I go back to solicitor as they would charge approx. £2000 to fight it as free legal aid isn't available unless it goes to court . I was also told by the cab to apply for esa what ever that is they help fill in the forms .
  7. courtesy of Newcastle city council, you can compare them with the old descriptors below.Activity 1 Walking on level ground with a walking stick or other aid if such aid is normally used. Description Points 1a Cannot walk at all 15 1b Cannot walk more than a few steps 15 1c Cannot walk more than 50 metres without stopping or severe discomfort 15 Taken from http://dwpexamination.wordpress.com/dwp-score-sheets-or-points-make-benefits/ some one might find the following link helpful as well its how to complete an ESA form just don't lie on it as you will be caught out . http://dwpexamination.org/forum/useful-templates/esa50-prompts-if-youre-struggling-to-find-the-words/
  8. the investigator has said" I can walk 40-50 mtrs and on my last declaration 2008 . I had put 10-15 mtrs " so she has said I lied/ did not inform them I had improved as its 40 mtrs to the car park where the car was kept . I have appealed this as when I had a tribunal(To keep my Dla Mobility ) in 2010 I had said" I could walk say from one lamppost to another in the street" which I now know is 30 mtrs apart . So I didn't lie I have said to the decision makers I have to walk that distance as I cant get the car any closer to my home .
  9. ok im being asked for £14,250 incap and £2,320 dla (mobility side only ) the dla I have appealed against .

  11. not at the minute sorry , I'm contesting the amount as they say 7 years and that's defo not true .
  12. Thanks for the reply at least I know now , thanks again .
  13. well just to let you know the dwp have sent a letter saying I have been over paid a large amount (total with held) and they want it back (which is fine by me as I wasn't trying to [problem] any one as I told them in my iuc , ) any way I 'm non the wiser what happens now with the process , the dwp are claiming I have been working for 7 years which I have not done , my old bank account shows payments of £75 a week going in from the company but I did not work for it , and have no way of proving it . I did explain things in the iuc as best I could ,. they contacted the company I was at and said" its going to court" (this was the lady who did the iuc ) but then she has said "it might or might not be" . can she decide or is it up to a higher authority . oh I've also lost my mobility car as part of this so I'm now stuck in the house unless my wife or some one takes me out . I did hold my hands straight up to the work part of the investigation and explained I did seek permission first . , how ever I have no idea what's going to happen now . thanks to the people who advised on my questions and I didn't mean to mislead any one .
  14. about £90- per week I wasn't told how much was allowed. I was paid fortnightly so near enough £200 per fortnight .
  15. I did start off just visiting that's true , and for the last few months I did the same . I was asked to consult on some work , that's true . I didn't fill in a pw1 never heard of it . I've been on incap for 12 years , i have arthritis right through my body and colitis and have serious problems walking , in-fact doing any thing physical . I did phone up and ask about permitted work and was told yes you can do 15 hours a week I never went over that . I did if I remember right tell them I would be doing it . I never got any more info from them that I can recall , if I have been naïve and get in to trouble ill put my hands straight up for it . I've always been law abiding not sure what will happen or what they will do to me , but I'm expecting to be taken to court , but what will happens there I've no idea. I have never claimed any other discounts or benefits including housing tax and rent . sorry if I misled people it wasn't intentional .I'm just so stressed at the minute with this and other family tragedy's that have happened.
